    As we all know, the oem front chin lip/spoiler for the 03/04 Cobra bumper can still be bought new but it is not cheap. Searching around the other night and found these. I was wondering if anyone has tried them out. One is like oem the other is solid carbon fiber.

    And here is the current price of the original....

    That one from HCM Carbon doesn't look like it takes the turns of the bumper very gracefully.

    Sub'n btw

    I would think the carbon fiber one wouldn't have any give if it scrapes or gets hung on something like the stock one would.

    That first urethane option looks to be great. Thanks for this thread. I physically cannot see the difference between that lip and OEM other than the $350.00 cheaper price tag

    Awesome thanks. The only weird thing is the urethane option states pre-order only (as if they're not currently available). I contacted them so hopefully i can order soon. Thanks again all.

    the fitment is spot on, he said they had to do some gentle gentle massaging on it, but a quality piece.

    best part is its cheaper than OEM!

    That's the first option to the 350$ OEM that I have seen. Has anyone on SVTP tried one of these out? I wonder if the fitment is good.

    Says pre-order only so they probably don't make them anymore

    Unfortunately the jonmotoring option isn't available anymore. My order got cancelled. I guess that leaves just the CF option.

    well the carbon fiber did look great. Does anyone make a possibly removable front splitter that would work well for road course racing, simmiliar to the 2000cobra R version?

    I feel like that carbon fiber one would shatter on the first mistake you made pulling in somewhere.
